Astronomy Night

Have you ever seen any movies portraying an asteroid or comet on a collision course with Earth? Have you ever wondered how much truth there may be in it? Are there really huge asteroids or comets out there which could cause serious damage to the Earth? Are there any which could actually hit us? You may be surprised. We'll "focus" our scopes on another galaxy, a nebula or two, some colorful stars and star clusters. And oh yes, a planet or two will be there. And with a little luck, maybe we'll be able to find an asteroid. There is an invitation to all to bring their "picnic" dinner at 6:00 p.m.
